Do not blow through Florence without spending time in this, and neighboring, piazzas. Take the time to go inside the duomo and neighboring buildings. Sitting in the piazza and having a cup of cappuccino (and maybe a glass of vino rosso) and just admiring where...More

Piazza means plaza or square, and in this case the name means in English “Cathedral Square.” The plaza used to be much larger, when Piazza San Giovanni now on the west side of the Duomo and where the Cathedral now sits were one. On the...More

Takes your breath away. Book ticket in advance to avoid waiting. Ticket covers chapel, tower and museum for 15 euros, as well as the dome. After walking up the tower was unable to do the dome.

As soon as you get around the final corner this absolutely amazing building is right in front of you. Almost too close to get it all on one picture. Don't bother the enormous amount of people from everywhere - they are here for the same...More

This plaza has several restaurants, cafes, tourist shops and big label stores. Shop, eat, sightsee or just watch the world go by in the shadow of this world-renowned heritage site.

As you make your way to visit El Duomo, don't rush, but walk slowly and take in the sights and sounds and even the smells of the Piazza Del Duomo. Perhaps never again you will walk upon these stones. Soak it all in.

We were amazed and the size and beauty of this Duomo. We hit this on our last day in Italy and were content to just walk around the outside and feel the weight of this place.

More than anywhere else in Tuscany, Florence is crammed full of tourist groups so try to arrive early or stay late into the evening. The duomo buildings are a must-see when in town though and the architecture is simply breathtaking. By late afternoon, most of...More

We stayed at a Air B&B overlooking Duomo. Very early in the morning the vast plaza is quite. Sitting in the shadows of great Duomo you can watch the city come alive as the shops open and tourists come pouring in. Everything is walkable from...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

You can visit it any time of the day. The restaurants in the piazza are open till late and you can always walk down the nearby roads and find lots of stalls for road side shopping.
